he goes from deal to deal. whether it's to reduce troop levels in afghanistan or work out this budget deal. >> you just implied something. a leader, to lead well, has to have followers. and right now, congress is a pretty cantankerous bunch. it's hard to lead under those circumstances. that said, i think david ignatius is on to something very important. the way this president has chosen to lead consistently right from the beginning does not fit the normal pattern we have seen in the past, after all, his formative experience as a leader was as a community organizer, and as a community organizer, you tend to lead from behind, the famous phrase now, you tend to herd people along, and that's a style he brought to the white house. it doesn't fit our stereo typical sense or the hunger people have for a leader who is out front, visionary, brave, that says this is where we ought to go and fights in the arena to get it done. and americans have had a very hard time adjusting to this very different style, which was i thought exemplified by that clip that david ignatius pointed out. >> what is it

afghanistan, pakistan. you're reading a couple pieces in the "new york times." now it's spreading to all of these different countries and one that really jumped off the page for me, drone attacks in somalia. >> joining us, jeremy scahill, on the cia secret sites in somalia, jeremy, the secret training programs and secret prisons out of somalia is part of your reporting there. how big a threat are these terrorist group there's? >> we should say first of all president obama campaigned on a promise to go up against these bush era policies declaring war on the world, running secret sites, torturing prisoners. deeply involved in an underground dungeon officially run by the somali national security agency, but their salaries are paid by the cia directly. in fact, one somali agent described thousand hairli ed ho and paid by u.s. agents and the u.s. is interrogating prisoners, including those rendered by the kenyan government, snatched off the streets in nairobi based on u.s. intelligence and taken to this secret prison and interrogated. it goes against the president's ordered he signed in janua
